Cosmetics, skin care products and perfumes are hot choices for gifting. Many clients have asked us about sending cosmetics and skin care products overseas. However, the ingredients in many cosmetics and skin care products may fail to successfully pass the customs clearance process! Why? How can it be avoided? Take a look at the explanation below:

Products Which Allow To Ship

  • Facial mask, such as paper mask, mud mask, gel mask

  • Cream-like products, such as eyeliner, lipstick, eyebrow cream, mascara, eyebrow dye, eyebrow pencil

  • Gel-like products, such as foundation, serum, cream

  • Eye shadow

Products Which Need Extra Attention

Why does FreightAmigo recommend you to check with our CS before sending the goods? It is because the ingredients of many products will be classified as dangerous goods – client may need to submit MSDS reports/some products will be rejected directly by the service provider! Moreover, different logistics service providers have different shipping restrictions. How much time you need to spend to study all of them? Stop wasting time & cost! You can refer to the following examples or directly ask our online customer service for help, which is a simpler way:

  • Alcoholic ingredients, such as makeup remover, toner, perfume

  • Contain medicinal ingredients, such as ointments containing steroids

  • Compressed gas or spray products, including sunscreen spray, compressed deodorant

  • Liquid products: such as eye drops, shampoo

  • Powdered products, such as pressed powder, blush

  • Oil products such as nail polish
